I've Been Tagged!

This is a first for me! I've been tagged by the Jen at The Perfect Balance FUN!

Here are the rules:

  • Link the person that tagged you and post the rules on your blog.
  • Share 7 random and/or weird facts about yourself.
  • Tag 7 random people at the end of your post and include links.
  • Let each person know that they've been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.
So here goes my 7 random/weird facts about myself:
  1. I grew up in a town that is a palindrome. (a word spelled the same ways forwards and backwards) GLENELG, MD!
  2. I was on the TWA Flight 800 plane the summer of '96 from NY to Paris a week before it crashed in the ocean. When we heard that the plane we flew on had crashed in the ocean (yes, the exact plane) - I didn't want to get on a plane to fly back.
  3. If I am hungry, or hot, or a combination of the two. I become a major B or "Babezilla" as some like to call it. :)
  4. I lived in London for 5 months during college. Semester abroad and I had the time of my life.
  5. I used to fake like I was playing the clarinet during concerts in middle school. I was horrible and mine would squeak really loud if I actually tried to play.
  6. I can do a killer running man. It usually comes out after TOO many cocktails.
  7. I won the "keg toss" competition in college during the Greek Olympics.
I am tagging the following folks (If you don't want to do it - I wont be offended - no biggie!)

Very interesting things! That plane crash story is FREAKY!! That would probably be enough for me never to fly again!

LOVE your fake clarinet story! That is hilarious!! Reminds me of when I used to fake sing in the choir. I seriously used to lip sync.
So scary about the plane!!!!!! I vividly remember that plane crash. So freaky and sad.

I bet the running man occurs while the keg tossing does!

You must have had fun in London! Is that were you mastered the running man?

Hope you have a wonderful weekend and fantastic race. You are going to run great. Can't wait to read about it.
